ChicagoLUG August Meeting and Hackfest

Time and location: Saturday August 24, 2013, 12:00 at Pumping Station One
Speakers: Bonnie King

We've scheduled our August meeting for Saturday, August 24th, starting at 12:00pm at Pumping Station: One. Early birds typically start showing up by about 11:40 or so. All are welcome.

Speaking Topics

Bonnie King will be giving a talk on Scientific Linux, a Linux distribution built from publicly available open source SRPMS provided by "a prominent North American Enterprise Linux vendor." From the website, "Scientific Linux is a Linux release put together by Fermilab, CERN, and various other labs and universities around the world. Its primary purpose is to reduce duplicated effort of the labs, and to have a common install base for the various experimenters."

Additional details to follow as we get closer to the meeting date.

Hacking

As per usual, several of us will hack on GNOME-related projects, but feel free to bring whatever project that you want to work on.

If you need help with setting-up or fixing your computer, please let us know in advance so that we can plan accordingly.

Foodstuffs

Some funds for food and drink are supplied by the GNOME Foundation, but it's typically a good idea to bring a few dollars if you want to partake of pizza and drinks.

    Hey all, we still have one speaking slot open for our 8/24 meeting. Let us know if you're interested in giving a short talk on something related to Linux or Free and Open Source software. If we only have the one presentation for 8/24, it will be fine . . . another one would be nice to have, though. Thanks. : )

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
